Students’ Corner

Welcome to the Students' Corner

This is a space for New York students to make yourselves heard. You are at the heart of every discussion about improving the Common Core and the State’s education system – so we can’t do it without you!

Please follow the conversation and let us know what you think.

Help Shape the Future

We want to hear from students about your experiences with all aspects of the Common Core – from curriculum to testing. Share your classroom experiences or submit an idea on how the system can be improved.

Meet Your Common Core Student Ambassador

Hey guys,

I’m Andreea. I’m a junior at Tech Valley--a project-based high school in the capital region. I hate pointless tests. Over the past few years I’ve heard a lot of kids complain about Common Core, and I’ve had to go through some of its unpopular changes myself. Well, the complaints have been duly noted! We want to change Common Core for the better, so that learning standards are still strong but don’t cause unnecessary anxiety.

But we can’t do it without knowing what you think. What, specifically, do you like or dislike about Common Core? How do you think it should be changed? Let me know, so I can work to make Common Core what you want it to be!
